Cauliflower Polonaise is an excellent example of simple food, that inject lots of flavor. It may have a Polish name, but it’s French in origin. This dish of boiled cauliflower, mixed with breadcrumbs, hard-boiled eggs, capers, garlic and butter comes together in no time,  yet completely bursts with flavor. A big plate all gone. Definitely will make again and again.

Finishing it on Le Creuset enamel cast iron gratin dish will go from oven to table beautifully.

TIP: No one likes the small of the cauliflower in the house when cooking. To eliminate completely the smell, add half or whole  lemon to the cooking water. Cut in half and squeeze some in the water. The lemon juice absorb the smell. Your family will never know that you are preparing them cauliflower.
